650 Ti?
 
Is this a good card? What's the best Nvidia card for $100-ish?

I noticed there aren't too many 650 Ti cards for under $150. As of right now, there's a 650 Ti Zotac card for $100. Looks like a good deal. Any thoughts on Zotac?

How much of a step up is the Ti from the standard 650?

I want to upgrade my card Geforce 7xxx series but only budgeting $100-ish and I can't buy until later this week, at the earliest.

I don't want to go ATI/AMD. I prefer the Kepler cards. It's not really for gaming.... just powerful for HTPC but if I wanted to game or do graphical work, I could.

Any advice?

I would ask someone like ST as he already has a 650 Ti in his main rig. I honestly love the 660 and 660 Ti those are what I run and for a extra $50 you can get a good Zotac 660/660 Ti when they go on sale.

Zotac is a great company with good tech support in my experience and they usually have kewl colour schemes

ACtually it is out again, however I did find that the TI is really an amazing budget card. A lot more powerful than I had initially anticpiated.

If you can find one for a good price, I would jump on it.

Nothing replaced it. Just doing H/W Shuffling in the house , my Nana (at 75) plays Wow, so I donated some parts across a few towers to update it a bit. Once I shuffle all the parts around I'll have a workable tower with the 650TI back in Tow. And, since another Santa helped replace a dead 260 my XP rig will be back up too.

650Ti is quite a bit faster than a 650. That said, given you don't really seem to want to game a 650 would likely suffice. If you can get a Ti for $100 though I would go for it.

Actually, the Ti is a lot faster, in that specific card. around 25% faster
